17" Steel Rim CHEAP Option? Anyone using OEM's from other vehicles? Ideas?

I'm interested in some super-duper cheap steel 17" rims just to see if I like running that size. I find TONS of used 35x12.50-17's around Eastern, NC so it makes sense. I just don't want to drop several hundred plus shipping to see if I dig this or not. I know a lot of trucks run this lug pattern so I wanted to see if any of you were running steelies (like you would cover with hub caps) or wheels from vehicles other than TJ's. Thanks!

A lot of jks come with a 17, you would just need an adapter seeing as the jk uses a 5x5 pattern while the tj uses a 5x4.5

Not a big fan of adapters. But thanks for throwing out the idea!

No problem, I wouldn't really want to go that route either. I just know the jks had 17s.

Jeeps, rangers, explorers, and mustangs are about the only thing with the correct pattern

might take some doing but I think some liberties came with steel 17s
